On 29th October, the Quaker Meeting House, Birmingham will play host to this day of reflection and discussion hosted by the Church and Peace Network. It will look at what makes us secure, and what makes us insecure, and how our faith fits into this and how the churches can play a prophetic role in building true security in our region today.
